billion from medicare that will affect current people in the program. was that a fact? >> that certainly is what the congressional budget office says. the numbers for that have been pretty well vetted over and over again. >> our own cnn fact checker says it's false. president obama's affordable care act allows for a reduction in the rate of growth over time in which money is coming from insurers and providers but not from beneficiaries. so in other words, it's not a fact, is it? >> wait a second. what he said is your guy didn't say it wasn't a fact, $716 billion were coming out of medicare. he just said they're targeted to one set of people on medicare but he didn't say they weren't coming out. so the question i have to ask you is simple. if you take $716 billion out of the program, how many hospitals are not going to take any more medicare patients? how many doctors aren't going to take any more medicare patients? this is a fundamental disagreement about the way the world works and i think that romney was right this morning when he went in, he said look, there are two different viewpoin

agreed that neither of their medicare plans would hurt existing elderly or anyone about to retire. they disagreed on the $716 million that obama caught current retiree, but the medi-scare and the social security scare tactic can't be used because obama stipulated that that won't be a problem. i think by failing to raise the 45%, the cayman islands and the tax return and the bain capital, obama was basically conceding that those are not legitimate shots. how can you spend $200 million advertising to push these facts and then when you confront the guy, you don't mention them? >> greta: you see -- i actually thought that that was smart because he looks like he is above this. that he is more presidential. and he leaves the dirty work to somebody else and doesn't have fingerprints on it, if they are done in campaign ads and certainly, pac ads, rather than his own campaign. >> that's the point, greta. it's the president says this is not worth dignifying and making it an issue, this is not worth the dignity of a presidential race, how are people going to vote based on it? it's dismissing
